will repeat over and over again, the 716 billion dollars in medicare cuts that obama is putting on people who are right now relying on medicare. and he will show, he will try to show that his plan will actually save medicare while obama will destroy it. i think that's his greatest edge and that's where he's going to go. >> paul: he's got a delicate task because i think he has to defend, jason, i think he has to defend romney against what will be biden's task even as he turns around and tries to go after the president's agenda while showing his own competence on substance, on these issues, that's a more complicated taste and biden is basically going to be all in assaulting romney. >> and i think that biden is going to want to talk foreign policy and i think the polls have shown that the president's doing good on that, not as well as he was, that gap has narrowed with the events in the middle east, but still, we killed bin laden and bringing troops home. it will be interesting how team romney respond on foreign policy. >> i don't know if he tries to go too hard on foreign policy in big trouble
. barack obama was defending his idea of obamacare and medicare and said for instance, that medicare works because the insurance companies have to make a profit on top of their administrative cost, medicare doesn't have to do that and it's lowered administrative costs and therefore a better deal. he said that romney's idea of premium support helping people buy insurance in the private marketplace, all economists agree the premium support will cause medicare to collapse. >> now that's an arguable point and i think that romney is going to engage him on those issues and try to continue to make the case for private sector health insurance. >> what i found interesting about this exchange is remember, obamacare was supposed to be romney's achilles heel throughout the primaries, his rivals said he wouldn't be able to challenge on that, and i think he proved a lot of people wrong. >> he pushed right through that and went on offense. >> and it's an example of his effort to reach across the aisle. >> bipartisanship, that's interesting. >> paul: let's look at an ad, a question how the democrats and o
, last summer, president obama was happy to make serious changes to medicare in exchange for getting a grand bargain. if he is reelected, he will go back to the table and i am sure the same questions will be on the tae again he has said he is open to making those changes. >> let me explain the difference between what obama would do with a $716 billion, and what romney and ryan would do. obama takes the money out of medicare and reduces the payments to doctors and hospitals which obviously reduces services. one sixth of all hospitals will have to shut down or refuse the elderly. he takes the money, and the 716 he saves, and places it into a new entitlement called obamacare, which will fund the uninsured. good cause but it takes from a and gives to b. what ryan does, in the original plan, he takes the same amount, and put it back into the medicare trust fund so it is a way to invest in the future. medicare is a way to see that we are going to cut a little now and then we will have it in the out years, where under normal plans, with no changes, you would have nothing in the out years. >
limited experience. >> and medicare. i imagine he will try to deliver what obama didn't, the message that, in their opinion, the republicans are going to mess with medicare, right? >> by the end of the debate, the the world will assume that paul rysunis spending the $716 million of medicare money. it won't continue to be obama and biden will make sure that happens. >> but he has a propensity for putting his foot in his mouth? >> that is what makes it great television. you don't know what is going to happen or he's going to say. >> great television. okay. [ laughter ] this is civics, okay in. >> for political views, it's great television. >> and this is such an incredible contrast in age. >> yeah. >> ryan looks like he's 25 and biden looks like he's three times 25. so, it's going to be interesting from that standpoint as well. >> and i am sure that we were going be watching it. >> oh, yes. >> okay. >> we'll have comments for you, i'm sure, next sunday morning right here. >> analysis on the post analysis as well. how's that in. >> exactly. >>> not enough talk to go around. coming up, one lo
. remember barack obama said his independent advisory panel on medicare wasn't going to make any decisions on treatment. it has unilateral power, unless congress overrides it with a super majority, to basically tell all doctors and hospitals this is how much money you have to treat people. that is incredible power. it is effectively the power to ration health care. i think the president was stretching the truth in and a big part of obamaed care, which, by the way, remains very unpopular. >> schieffer: norayou have covered all these people. you have interviewed all of them. where do you see this right now? where do you see this going? >> reporter: well, mitt romney energized not justs had supporters of republicans and conservatives across the country, but even his own campaign, who i think having talked to them acknowledged they had trouble with their own message, that they had been sort of chasing the shiny penny, as one adviser put it today, that they feel like they've had a reset button, if you will. they certainly also feel like they've got an opportunity now to focus on different sorts
in medicare money. it will not continue to be obama. >> biden also has a propensity for, shall we say, putting his foot in his snout. >> that's what makes it such great television. you don't know what he's going to say. >> great television. >> okay. >> this is civic, okay? >> political game. this is for television. >> and there is such an incredible contrast in age. ryan looks like he is 25. biden looks like he is three times 25. it's going to be interesting from that standpoint as well. >> we will be breaking it down for you next sunday. >> that's right. >>> but coming up, we'll have one last look at some of this morning's top stories. >> including a missing wallet. a postal carrier's lost and found story. we'll be right back. ,,,, vo: for years, sacramento politicians have chopped away funds for our schools. today, we're forty-seventh out of fifty in per-pupil funding. now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarante
most uttered were the big ones. people, medicare, governor, obviously, romney. what jumps out? i don't know, but what doesn't jump out is the words fiscal cliff. neither president obama nor mitt romney mentioned it at all during wednesday's debate. i was kind of amazed, christine. i was amazed to have a debate focused on the economy and not one word about how these guys would avert the fiscal cliff, ask frankly, not one question from the moderator about the most serious thing that could be facing our economy right now. christine, stay right where you are. i want to bring in cnn's chief national correspondent john king who has been a debate moderator in the past as well as the democratic u.s. senator from georgia sam nunn. he is actively working with both alan simpson and ershkin bowles to find simple, long-term solutions to the gridlock. think of this as simpson bowles 2.0. he's been highly critical over the handling of the fiscal cliff that threatens our economy. senator nunn, you have said, quote, both sides seem to have a political strategy, but their governing strategy is in doub
at one point obama said, wait a minute, can we stay on medicare? really, we want to cut that off? this is what we want. also i think baous f the 20-some-odd republican preds den chal prynary debates who we had moderators who did a good job would treat it almost as a quasi interview. here's your record and what you said, does anybody else want to pile on? i don't know that debated should be about that. >> on that point, julie, there were points i thought jim lehrer might follow up where he would say, you said this six months ago and now you say this. if it was on the "newshour," that's what we would want. >> we want the moderator to almost con venn j, be in front, get in front of someone's face and say, liar. step back. it's much better for democracy really. >> here's a problem and i think bob schieffer who's going to moderate this third debate with the same format is going to have to think about this. there are moments where you can say -- le let ee says to mitt romney, you've said again and again you'll eliminate the deductions and loopholes. give us one or two examples. >> i ag
to continue to rise. up to 20 million americans will lose their employer-based health insurance under obama care, and they'll raise $716 billion from medicare. governor romney has a different approach that would move the country in the right direction and that's what they're frustrated about. >> let's talk about that approach and get to the bottom of this disagreement. governor romney says he will not increase the deficit with his tax cuts. he's saying he will not increase taxes on the middle class, so is he saying that if he cannot come up with enough loopholes and deductions, closing the deductions to pay for the tax cuts, which amount to about $5 trillion, that he will scale them back? >> what he has said, george, he is going to cut tax rates across the board by 20% and offset those cuts with eliminating deductions and loopholes for the upper income families. >> but there aren't enough deductions to pay for that. >> for middle class families. you can pay for it. there are six studies that say that you can do that. you can broaden the base and lower the rates. that would foster economic g
to joe as o'biden. and perhaps if biden wants to actually have some facts ready, unlike obama did when paul ryan hammers him for wanting to cut $716 billion out of medicare, please respond by saying, that's the same $716 billion that you propose cutting from medicare. small fact but it works. >> i think it would be funny if he was like, listen rand paul or ryan -- that would be hilarious if he did that. paul ryan can go, you betcha. >> exactly. >> there's going to be i'm sure a lot of focus on this, on vice president joe biden, really i should say on paul ryan as well because fairly new to the national stage at this level and the pressure is going to be on both of them because of the president's performance and mitt romney performed well. people are going to say paul ryan should perform well. looking ahead, what does the president need to do or say to come out strong in the next debate without appearing aloof? >> well, first of all, how about just don't be aloof? you're supposed to be this huge inspiring leader. maybe try to bring a little zest in your voice. you're trying to save the
to injury said, yeah, we won't be able to have medicare to continue to be a guarantee, we will have to shred that safety net to preserve it. barack obama's plan has proven we can add years of solvency, 8 years by making sure we reduce wasteful subsidies to medicare insurance companies and add years of solvency. we need to work together to continue to move forward, not have republicans rooting for failure and really transparently being disappointed that we have made progress. we have a ways to go, but we need to continue to move forward and fight for the middle class, not for the people who are doing really, really well and make sure they can do even better. >> shannon: you brought up obamacare. and medicare, but that's a plan, which outside independent bodies and fact-checking organizations across the board have said it takes more than $700 billion out of medicare. >> no on the contrary. the $716 billion does is, it is savings in wasteful subsidies that didn't go into the care of seniors at all for medicare advantage companies and plows that into fighting fraud and abuse. in the last 2 years
consistently over barack obama. if there is a fear of medicare as we know at, that could be another demographic the republicans have to know about. postal let's go to ken in missouri. . end up losing by two or are three, so hopefully, come through, but i think all of these republican outliers going start pushing money in and we'll be in republicans have never been the answer, they have always been the problem. >> host: so givings that you perspective. >> guest: once upon a time a genuine swing state. as you may remember, from 1994 to 2004, but as the caller makes a point it has become more republican and become more conservative, mccain only won the tate by 4,000 four year ago, romney expected to win by much more. again tbrsh the akin didn't have these comments that seemed to have dracked them down if he did have the financial support from washington that was promised key have well beaten claire. >> host: one of the colleagues had recent story that said women head for the hills in record numbers. more women are running for congress than ever before. the 18 women running for the senate break the
into a generic -- i propose this medicare plan. we're not talking about that now. we're talking about barack obama's failed leadership. he's basically behaved like rob portman would have bee had as a running mate. they want the boring running mate. i think you're right. they usually think about me, paul ryan was everybody conservative republican five years ago. this was a great springboard for the future getting on this ticket. i'm starting to look at it and say, if romney/ryan does not win, his stock could go down long-term. >> here's the unfortunate truth. the last time a vice presidential nominee made a difference is when 1960 when lbj for texas. that's number one. number two, vice presidential running mates always, first thing is do no harm. we learned that obviously from sarah palin. most americans look at the vice presidential debate and say i'm still going to vote for romney or the president. unless there's a game changer like a sarah palin moment. that's not going to happen on thursday. i go back to my original point. these are two very smart people sticking to the talking points. at
. the other battle over the plans for the next four years where o obama will be tough on romney and say this is a guy who wants to give tax cuts to the wealthc and to voucherrize medicare. romney will say he is the defender of the middle class. t both sides say this could get heated tonight. >> chris, thank you. >> good evening. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs moderating this debate. >> i'm jim lehrer and welcome you to the first of the 2012l presidential debates between president barack obama the democratic nominee and former, massachusetts governor mitt romney the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored byo the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15 minute segments with two minutt answers for are the first question and then open discussion for the remainder o. each segment. o thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means.. but i made
successfully about cutting medicare and medicaid, social security. the bottom line, romney was able to move to the center, obama fell apart, i think, even worse than you are saying. he looked like he was not up to the job. >> that is consistent with what he does in news conferences. >> i would have a camera out there the next day showing him back on the teleprompter saying, back on the teleprompter, back on the attack. the thing is, doug is right. romney talked about working together bipartisanly which appeals to a lot of voters particularly we democrats. he did not sound partisan the he talked about obamacare. he made the philosophical --. >> he promised the middle class he would not raise the taxes. >>gregg: the first presidential debate could be a major game changer. will the next debate have as much of an impact? we will hear from our campaign insiders. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and always have.
, he also took 716 billion dollars out of medicare, and one of the main attack points na romney is making against obama and romney would put that 716 billion dollars back. but, you can be sure that biden is going to say, well in your own budget you were taking the 716 out. so he's going to try to paint, you're exactly right, peter, paint romney with some of ryan's positions not to say they were extreme, but more conservative and more hide line. >> chris, tell us what's coming up on your show today. >> we will have our own debate, alisyn. we are going to have two interesting figures, martin o'mally the governor of maryland and a lot of people think win or lose for obama, a possible presidential candidate for the democrats in 2016 against kelly ayotte, one of the rising stars in the republican party, the senator from the key swing state of new hampshire, and then we're going to have a debate guru, bret o'donnell, may not have heard of him, but seen his work, one of the campaign debate coaches for 2004 and mccain in 2008. and mitt romney before the florida primary, florida debate,
